A second trailer has now officially been released by Fox after a pirated version leaked on-line earlier today. Fox have had to respond to a leaked trailer in the same way Disney had to on Thursday after the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer leaked. Both trailers have had to be released earlier than intended.
This new Fantastic Four trailer is fantastic, and I didn’t even realise it had run fr almost three minutes by the time it finished. There is still some cool, grounded moments of threat and menace, and director Josh Trank has certainly beefed up the realism aspect to his film.
The comedy in this trailer works well too, and thankfully is not in your face, but just right to add that human touch. We get an even better look at The Thing (Jamie Bell) and he really does look incredible, and finally we get our first look at main villain Dr Doom.
Toby Kebbell plays Dr Doom, and he revealed to Collider last year some details on this new take on the character:
“He’s Victor Domashev, not Victor Von Doom in our story. And I’m sure I’ll be sent to jail for telling you that. The Doom in ours—I’m a programmer. Very anti-social programmer. And on blogging sites I’m “Doom”.
Trank also revealed recently that he wants to make his film scary and realistic:
Trank told Kinberg he had two ambitions. First, the film had to feel scary and very real, more like a horror movie than a superhero flick. And second, it ultimately had to be a coming-of-age story. “Part of defining yourself,” Kinberg explains, “is that moment when you go from being dependent to being in control of your destiny.”
We also have a new poster to show you below.
Directed by Josh Trank, Fantastic Four stars Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm, Kate Mara as Sue Storm, Miles Teller as Reed Richards and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm.
Fantastic Four arrives in UK cinemas on 6th August.
FANTASTIC FOUR, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
